Surrey, British Columbia: A Greek Orthodox Church (Ss. Constantine and Helen) found itself victimized after discovering their place of worship was broken into. Between the late afternoon of September 5th and mid morning of September 7th their church was burglarized and a number of religious articles were stolen.

Lord, Have Mercy.  May all the stolen religious items be promptly recovered and returned to the House of God.  Amen!

May the Lord make this an opportunity for the Spiritual renewal of those who have done this.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

My own parish in July had a grand theft incident, where the miscreants took our air conditioner for the copper. We're thankful for the cooler weather we are now getting, and I hope the Lord helps to change the hearts of those that steal from churches.
